Do you recommend training daily?
No. Maximum benefits are derived from intensity and recovery. We offer a complete health and fitness program, and so we recommend that you take time to recover so that you perform your best at every session. This will prevent injury and backsliding from over-training. You’ll be surprised to learn that the volume of training doesn’t reflect your fitness or progression.
Talk to one of our coaches to choose the schedule that meets your specific goals–especially if you’re using CrossFit as your conditioning program for a specific sport. On the other end of the spectrum, we do want to see people coming in on a regular basis. Generally, the CrossFit prescription is 3 days on and 1 day off. Of course, life (and your work schedule) doesn’t see it that way.
At a minimum, we want you in 3 to 4 days per week. Your success matters to us, and the only way to achieve that is if you come in.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY FIRST CROSSFIT WORKOUT?
You will feel successful and part of a community of athletes, many of whom you did NOT expect to be CrossFitters. You’ll have a better understanding of how classes are run and the method behind what we do. And it’s likely you will have learned new things, be a little bit “sore” and excited to come back for more.
What makes CrossFit GSP different from other gyms?
CrossFit is about variance and adaptation. We “program” our workouts for General Physical Preparedness, or GPP. We don’t have leg days, back- and bi- days, or cardio days. We believe the body is a whole system, and strengthen it as a whole.
Our coaches also give you basic education in diet and nutrition. We believe that nutrition is the foundation of health and fitness and know that how we feed our bodies determines how quickly we achieve the results we want. So for you, this means you’re a better runner than the best weightlifter, a better lifter than the best marathoner, and generally physically prepared for anything in your everyday life. Plus you’ll live in a healthy body with a strong, lean physique.
The best part is that every workout is lead by a qualified coach and you’re joined by like-minded people who want to be and feel better.
How are the classes structured?
Each class starts with a dynamic warm-up, followed by skill or strength training and finally instructions and movement standards for the WOD (workout of the day). When your coach says “3-2-1 Go!” the challenge begins and our community of athletes push themselves and encourage others to achieve elite fitness. Our community class is designed for universal scaleability and anyone can participate.
